dpkg (1.22.0ubuntu1) mantic; urgency=low

  * Merge from Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
    - Change native source version/format mismatch errors into warnings
      until the dust settles on Debian bug 737634 about override options.
    - Add DPKG_UNTRANSLATED_MESSAGES environment check so that higher-level
      tools can get untranslated dpkg terminal log messages while at the
      same time having translated debconf prompts.
    - Special-case arm{el,hf} ELF objects in Shlibs/ for multilib.
    - Map unqualified package names of multiarch-same packages to the native
      arch instead of throwing an error, so that we don't break on upgrade
      when there are unqualified names stored in the dpkg trigger database.
    - Apply a workaround from mvo to consider ^rc packages as multiarch,
      during the dpkg consistency checks. (see LP: 1015567 and 1057367).
    - dpkg-gencontrol: Fix Package-Type override handling for ddeb support.
    - scripts/Dpkg/Vendor/ set 'nocheck' in build options by default
      on Ubuntu/riscv64.  Overridable in debian/rules with
      'DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS := $(filter-out nocheck,$(DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS))'.
    - scripts/Dpkg/Vendor/, scripts/
      Set 'nocheck' for riscv64 using a new 'update-buildopts' hook and make
      it effective with old style debhelper, too.
    - dpkg-dev: Depend on lto-disabled-list.
    - dpkg-buildflags: Read package source names from lto-disabled-list,
      to build without lto optimizations. When adding a source package to the
      list, please also file a launchpad issue and tag it with 'lto'.
    - scripts/Dpkg/Vendor/ set 'noudeb' build profile by
      default. Override this by exporting DEB_BUILD_PROFILE='!noudeb' which
      will be stripped, and thus building with udebs.
    - build: Switch default dpkg-deb compression from xz to zstd.
      Keep compressing dpkg.deb with xz to help bootstrapping on non-Ubuntu
    - set default zstd compression level to 19
    - scripts/Dpkg/Vendor/ Always include "-fdebug-prefix-map"
      to build flags.  Map path to "/usr/src/PKGNAME-PKGVER" instead of
      ".", honouring the DWARF standard which prohibits relative paths
      in DW_AT_comp_dir.
    - scripts/{mk/,}: Add support for DEB_BUILD_DEBUGPATH.
    - man/dpkg-buildflags.pod: Document new behaviour of "fdebugmap" and
      new DEB_BUILD_DEBUGPATH variable.
